Major incident planning exercise lifts off at Noble's

Tue, 09 Apr 2019


Staff at Noble’s Hospital have demonstrated their ability to respond to a major incident in the Island after being put through their paces in Exercise Apollo.      

The annual training day is designed to stress-test procedures in place across the hospital in the event it has to deal with an influx of casualties following a large-scale emergency. 

More than 150 staff took part in the event masterminded by Noble’s Emergency Department consultant Dr Gareth Davies and ED colleague, nurse consultant Martin Hamm.

All sectors of the hospital were represented and participants included doctors in a variety of specialities, nurses, theatre and intensive care specialists along with laboratory, diagnostic and mortuary staff.  The essential role of porters, catering, housekeeping, reception and admin staff were added to the exercise, alongside a virtual media centre and reception for relatives.
